Painting, Cleaning, and Fluffing!

We have been painting everything in sight the last few days!  This piece has been in storage out in the studio....

Here she is in the kitchen yesterday.....all ready to be painted.  It has been very cold here, so we decided to paint inside.

Beautiful roses on the drawers and a marble top.

Here she is with her first coat of paint on......

I shabby- fied her up a little...

Couldn't wait to get her decorated for Valentines day!

 I always use cord covers to hide lamp cords, just a finishing touch that I like to add.

This is what was on that wall before (I'll show you later where this cabinet was moved to)  We've been doing a lot of moving , cleaning, and painting!

See the hall in the mirror?.....We've been working in that hall all day!  Will show you as soon as we're done!  H said "but it's not spring yet"  I told him this is "New Year" primping....we'll do more in the spring!  He's so EXCITED...LOL!

  1. Oh how pretty! That table looks like a million the new paint job. can't wait to see what else you have been up to! Jane

  2. I enjoy looking at your post. I love pink. It makes me happy.

  3. More often than not I see painted furniture that I feel looked soooo much better before, in their original state. In this case.....What you have done is as beautiful as the table itself.

  4. That is beautiful and I especially love the marble top! Good job!

  5. Penny,
    Holy Moly.... you are on a roll , girl!! LOL!! I told you that I am green with envy of your free time!!
    LOVE this table!! Beautiful! And the marble top to boot!!
    I had to tell you that I have the same card holder that you used for the Valentine's!! I bought it for a buck in a little shop somewhere....
    Can't wait to see more....


  6. Oh Penny...wonderful job again!!!I love it!!!The table is very beautiful and shabby. Your decors on it are marvellous. The cabinet is gorgeous and i' m looking forward to seeing the next post...Thank you very much for stopping by over me and for your sweet words!!!!!

  7. Oh how cute!! I have some painting projects I want to do --- but afraid it will look worse when I finish. You have motivated me to try my hand. Your project turned out so nicely. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Penny, what a cute table, I love it! Your painting project turned out beautifully.

  9. What a gorgeous little harp table!!! I love it and the marble top is glorious! Hugs, Cindy

  10. That is just about the cutest piece of furniture I've seen in a long while. You did right by it, I think. And you definitely have a handle on "Romantic"! I'm inspired. Lynaea @

  11. What a cute Valentine tree! I have a white one that's all wintery right now, but I can't wait to make it pink and red. Yours gave me some great ideas. Thanks so much for sharing! Have a wonderful day!

  12. I just love that little table all brightened up with paint. My mom had a little oval harp table when I was growing up, so of course I'm drawn to it. Love your Valentine decorations too. Patti@OldThingsNew

  13. That table is really beautiful. The harp shape is just perfect!

  14. What kind of paint do you use? I've got an old wooden tool box that I bought at an antique mall that I would love to paint white. I've never done any painting before.

  15. Hi Penny,
    Your table looks fabulous! Beautiful base and I love the rose handles. I love how a splash of paint can change the look of a piece of furniture or room. Love your valentine decor!

  16. Your valentine tree is so pretty! I'll bet your hubby just shook with delight when you told him there was more planned for the spring! All our painted pieces are beautiful. Love the harp base of that table. Linda

  17. I love painted furniture and what a wonderful table this is. You did a beautiful job and the little tree is so cute on it. Your hubby sounds like mine; he's OK with pretty much anything you do in decorating. We're blessed ladies, aren't we, Penny? Thank you for sharing this at my HOME and have a beautiful day.
